Got Milk?

Hello All

Isn’t it amazing? I mean the impact of such a simple statement “Got Milk?”. I’m sure there are several other simple statements that convey such a powerful idea. I don’t know about you but I really enjoy “deep” theological discussions and concepts. I mean you get me talking about things like Jesus being fully God and fully man, or each item in the Fruit of the Spirit or Dispensations and the like, and we could be there for a while. Perhaps you’re like that on some issues. Of course, I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with the meatier(weightier) things in Scripture. Matthew 23:23 encourages this. My focus for today however, is that we would be sure to first have a firm grasp on the elementary things.

Here’s The Word;

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

1 Peter 2:3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

Sometimes I think that we like looking like a theological upper-classmen. We spend a fair amount of time in those areas when, truth be told, there’s still so much for us to learn in the elementary things. I’ll go even further and say that I think our “Christianity” would look a little more Christ-like if our foundations were more sure rather than having an ability to spout seminary rhetoric. How much thought have you really given to God’s Grace and Power? These are milk issues. But they also need to be allowed to tear down our preconceived notions. We tend to put God in a “Kindler, Gentler” box to the point where we lessen His Grace.

We define His “Goodness” as the things He does that makes us feel good. Rather than realizing that if He disregards every effort you felt most deeply about, He’d still be just as Good. He’s therefore to be praised all the more that He would ever consider blessing your efforts. We have discussions that come off sounding like “Awww, don’t worry. God’s going to be nice on Judgment Day for people who never heard the name Jesus”. Like we forget there was a flood that killed all but 8. He is a gracious God and will show compassion as He chooses. But it’s up to Him.

So, just a little something to “chew” on. I encourage the pursuit of strong meat as a sign of maturity. I just submit that it wouldn’t hurt to look back to make sure we got milk.



In Him, Cros
